Hi my name is Amy. I live in the soggy Seattle area with my husband and 2 teenage daughters.

Claiming Disco Queen Highness for wire wrapped jewelry from her Pinterest board

This is my 2nd claim  / 0 in transit / 1 received

Hello, I am Eszter from Hungary (Europe). I am living in Budapest (capital of Hungary) with my husband and my 2.5 years old son. We don't have any allergies, and I think, no one in my Christmas list. I am not prepared well yet, but I think, I can give you some ideas, what I would like to give to my family and friends. I might will upload more and more items, as soon as something coming to my mind.

Thanks!



My son:
He is 2.5 years old. I am renovating his room (we want to move soon from this flat, so we don't want to buy expensive things here). He has green walls, and a lot of stuff what I've made from our old jeans. So, here are some ideas what came to my mind:
 - SEWING: any type of denim stuffed animals (http://pinterest.com/pin/32158584812343698/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/276127020876276597/ , http://pinterest.com/pin/139189444705673751/ etc...)

I claim Grab A Coffee for a car stufftie

6 claims  / 1 in transit / 3 received
Grab A Coffee for car stufftie (claimed)
Glasskicker for silhouette cover and baby stuff (claimed)
Mama24boyz for monster bibs (sent)
Klg_jlg for felt dress up doll set (received)
Glasskicker for a quilted book cover (received)
Glasskicker for wall charger pockets (received)

My name is Christy and I live in Maryland.  I am a stay at home mommy of one really energetic and crazy hilarious daughter.  We also have a lil chihuahua "ChiChi" and a chunky bunny "Fuzz Ball". I am originally from Austin, Texas and even though I love the seasons in Maryland, I am hoping to move back to crazy hot Austin when my husband retires from the Navy.  I picked up sewing about 2 years ago and have become a crafting freak.  Finding Craftster was awesome for me, I'm so addicted to swapping now.

My Craftster Pinterest folder has some extra ideas   http://pinterest.com/watsonc7/craftster/   . Also, feel free to check out my other pinterest boards because they are full of projects I probably won't do myself dangit.

I have tons of nieces/nephews and adults in my family so I will be putting a number in parenthesis for the total amount I would want of an item, but I don't expect you to fulfill that total number (unless you are a lil crazy, woop woop).  There is only one family group of mine with allergies (peanut, animal, and smoke) so I will note when a gift needs to be allergen free (there's only a few).

:::::SEWN:::::

My daughter (size 8 or kids medium) refuses to give up last years ratted out kitty hoodie (this is it, pretty simple http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573552) , so I'd love to get her one made with some of her favorite specifics: (triple bonus, but not a game changer!) glow in the dark eyes/paws (her current one is glow in the dark), cute ears on hood, a deeper than normal hood to cover her face better (we like to walk to school especially in the winter so it will keep wind off her cheeks better), built-in fingerless paws (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573555/) and ooooh a detachable tail (http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573525/).
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573507/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773573562/
The links are examples with different specifics in them, feel free to create your interpretation, she will freak out over any kitty hoodie I'm sure.

Fluffle Puff plush!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773653997/

GGma: loves Cardinals (the bird, not team) so maybe a mug rug (she loves her coffee too),  tote bag,  pouch or anything else with a cardinal theme.  She reads and is active in church. (thanks Lo{ve}!)

(4) car trash bags with vinyl insert
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=352363.0#axzz2e5GOLdhn

(unlimited) Fabric paper towels preferably in half size, but I'll totally take full sized sheets. Bonus for using three snaps a side and including the center snap roll --I've seen it on other tutorials, it holds the towels in the middle http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395335/

KitchenAid mixer cover for my SIL who has a green kitchen (so would rather it just have green accents maybe, not all green).  It doesn't have to be as intricate as the link, there are tons of different designs online
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395273/

A large purse insert organizer (or the pattern and I will make it!) in neutral colors for my cousin.   http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/products/item/Suzi_Purse_Insert_More/299/c50

Mug Rugs:
wine-themed for Mawmaw (thanks grab a coffee!)
cardinal themed for GGma
(3) tea themed
any mug rugs inspired by or just like ones on http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/mug-rugs/

Pincushions http://www.pinterest.com/watsonc7/pincushions

4 tree trunk placemats (I will personalize) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773367784/

My young nieces love the movie Camp Rock so anything themed to that would freak them out (they are seriously so easy to please, love it!)....character dolls (fabric or painted), totes/pouches, anything.

Baby Girls: head bands, ruffle bloomers, onesie dresses, fabric shoes, anything girly.  By Christmas one will be 4 months (***allergies in that household***) and the other will be almost a year old.

super cute fox scarf (doesn't have to be exact, but rusty fox colors would be great) http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395069/

(3) super hero fort kits --- any neutral colors/themes because girls will be using them too.  ****One of these kits needs to be from an allergen free home,  please let me know  if you have allergens  in your home so I don't  give it to them, thanks! **** (thanks momof2!, now I only need 3 more)
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773396328/

Game themed zip pouch to hold my 9 yo nephews DS and games  (Mario, skylanders, kerbey, etc)

I have lots of nephews (6 and under) who would freak over superhero gear (capes, shoe wings, cuffs, gloves, masks , etc).  It would be awesome to get their initials on the capes/cuffs...just message me for the initials
2 batman lovers, 2 iron man lovers, captain America, and Spider-Man
Some ideas::
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/165577723773656949/

http://www.pinterest.com/pin/282882420315336386/


Felt/fabric chess set, anything but pink (if you don't have chess pieces, I would love checkers pieces made out of felt or something )  for nephew     http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773359817/

(lots) candy wrapper zip pouches from any kind of candy  
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773395035/  

(3) Incognito bag of disguises http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773409379/

(2) car toy bags
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773430200/

Lunch money cuffs (4 boys, 4 girls -- 7-8" from end to end)
http://pinterest.com/pin/165577723773436979/

I would love quiet book pages---a standard sized sheet of felt with any quiet book activity on it...ill take as many as I can get.  I will bind them myself after I have collected enough activities to make a book.

:::::WHATEVER MEDIUM YOU WANT:::::

I claim Watsonc7 for a taxidermy MLP  Wink

(4,2,0)

Hi!  I’m Melanie from Ontario, Canada. I’m a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  I’m sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/

Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom – OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.

I claim underthemountain for homemade soaps for her sister.

4/2/1
My name is Melody and I am in South Carolina. I live with my husband our 2 daughers ages 6 and 14. We do have 2 dogs and 2 cats. They do not come in the craft room. We are a non smoking home. While we are not allergic to smoke, my daughter is bothered somewhat by the smell so I would prefer not to receive from a smoking household.

Biggest wishes are in red.  

For my youngest daughter
She has talked about this that she saw in a toy store for a year http://www.squishable.com/pc/massive_squish_owl_24/squishable_massive/?gclid=CKGh4P2MmroCFYdQ7AodCHEA0A I can't make myself pay that much for a bean bag chair. I would love to give her a bean bag chair with a big owl face on it though. I could stuff it myself. Doesn't have to look like the picture, and of course doesn't have to be made out of that fur either.

She loves mermaids, so maybe some kind of doll... I love these..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664308097/ and especially http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664302357/

Dresses are always a hit. These are especially cute. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664378862/

Hairbows are always good. These are cute, but anything girly really (not really into pastel baby colors)..http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664392283/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664360202/ These are just ideas, any little bows especially with dolls or animals would be great stocking stuffers.

Apron (she loves to cook) some that are cute... http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469052/
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/547187423446498203/

Chef hat would be cute too.

Elf doll http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665005723/

Little fabric house with animals http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665469057/

Tshirt ruffle dress, maybe with a long sleeve tshirt http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664526929/

Snowball surprise http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986664443641/

Elf slippers. Maybe more of a Christmas red with some cream? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/542402348841574923/

Peg people pets (mostly cats and dogs) and/or some peg people furniture or accessories (rugs, dog beds, etc)  My daughter wants a peg pet rescue of sorts. I am going to try to work on that so anything to go with that would be great.

Travel pillow that will go on the seat belt :  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666753187/

Kimono shoes: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741699/

Felt food. She has breakfast foods but any other would be good. Really like these
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787607/ and
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666787608/ or hot dogs, sandwiches, anything really!

Crochet jacket thing..I love this!
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666795754/

Crocheted red cape with hood.

She loves stuffed animals, and would love one or two of these little mice http://sewingstars.com/mousepattern.htm

Barbie clothes, any and all. She is getting barbies for the first time this year and is already talking about being able to change their clothes.

Oldest daughter:
Sloth hoop for her wall (doesn't have to be this one)http://www.pinterest.com/pin/202873158184870734/

Ice cream phone or ipod case (she has a phone and an ipod) http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666140189/

Walking dead..she loves Glen and especially Daryl (who doesn't) so something like this maybe? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522026/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665522050/ She's not picky. She will love anything with either of them on it.

She also loves Lord of the Rings, especially the cute guy that played on  Hidalgo (I can't remember his name). Anything Lord of the rings is good.

She also loves the SF 49ers and Kirko bangz. I think she would like some pins to pin on her bookbag etc. with either of those.

She has a smash book too, so likes things for it.

Fused glass night lights. Would love these for both daughters! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741648/ Don't have to be just like this. Any little cute animal would work.

Horse all purpose saddle pad. She loves pink leopard print http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666716215/

Horse bridle tag and maybe a dog tag for her dog. Something like this http://www.etsy.com/listing/77562141/personalized-horse-bridle-tag-big-brass.

Dinosaur wall plaques. I have seen ones I liked more than this but I can't find the links. Something like this though, in fun colors. I would want the dino to be a different color than the plaque so it would stand out better http://www.pinterest.com/pin/113856696802465553/

Wrapped ear buds! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773596/

Shrinky dink dino necklace!! A Parasaurolophus would be ideal, but t rex is awesome too!  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769354/

Ed, Ed, Eddy plank. Maybe a pillow? Or a necklace? Anything with the plank on it would be fun.

She is redecorating her room in black, white, and hot pink. Any pillows to go along with that would be fantastic. You don't have to stuff them, I can do that. Anything else that would go in a teen's room would be great really.


My husband:
He's hard to craft for. He does like to hunt though and had this cowl like thing that he used to wear until it finally fell apart. Basically it was a knitted tube he slipped over his head. It would need to be pretty soft, thick and warm, and simple. Maybe camo colors or browns, greens. Just nothing that would stand out. He will be wearing it hunting.
He would also like maybe some body wash, shampoo, shaving soap
 in woodsy scents.
He would like a simple leather wallet.  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Mom:
Another one that is hard but maybe some home made greeting cards. She is always sending cards to everyone for everything. These are some of the types I think she would like..just ideas.. not very picky but she doesn't like anything too silly.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/49187820900514490/ or
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/228628118553494523/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/50735933272727968/
Casserole carrier http://www.pinterest.com/pin/66287425736581335/ or something like http://www.pinterest.com/pin/76842737365167411/
Necklace of some sort with kids and grandkids birthstones. I love this tree of life: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741560/
Kitchen towels embellished.. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My Dad:
Chihuahua mug: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741659/
If anyone paints, he would love a painting of his late Chihuahua. He passed away this year and my Dad is still grieving.Some arthritis salve would be good for several people on my list.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663794164/
Step Mom:
She likes to crochet so maybe something to organize her supplies?
Spindle for beginners? I don't know much about spinning but I think she would love to try it  http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769179/ Something like this maybe? Not picky about it at all.
Roving? Isn't that what she would need to spin? http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769167/

My brother:
Some sort of video game controller pillow. He's a major gamer. Or maybe a couple pillow cases for his bed pillows, something like this (doesn't have to be exact)
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986665215760/
My brother's gf:
She is going to school for vet tech. I think she would like a bag like this or similar: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741667/
Coffee cozy kitty http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666775397/
Anchor bracelet. I could use 2 of these, or similar http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666769330/

Brother in law:
He loves geocaching and zombie stuff so anything to do with that. Maybe some kind of zombie preparedness kit.
Geocaching key chains http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666741744/

Various things for various people:
Crocheted bath poufs http://www.pinterest.com/pin/118852877638840350/
Ribbon keychains: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/446067538062632632/
Simple fabric wallets something like this http://www.pinterest.com/pin/176555247864837307/
A hat with beard (pirate theme would be even cooler) for a boy that is 7, turning 8 in March http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749364/ or http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666749362/ Doesn't have to be just like these, they are just ideas.
Sasquatch mugs would be good for a couple people I know. http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986663212006/
Pottery. I love handmade pottery. I could use coffee mugs for several people.
My oldest daughter's best friend would like some emblem3 buttons to pin on things, or maybe a dachshund hoop or earrings. She has a black/tan named Lola.
Pot holder clutches. These would be good for several girls on my list. I will put the stuff in them.
http://www.pinterest.com/pin/85286986666773599/

I claim underthemountain for a crocheted bag and a superman ami

(5,2,0)

Hi!  Im Melanie from Ontario, Canada. Im a 36 year old stay-at-home-mom to 5, 4 boys and 1 girl.  No allergies at our house really.  We have a huge family day on Christmas with aunts and uncles, grandmas and grandpas and kids, and we do this for both sides.  Long fun days.  Im sure my list will get longer as we get closer to the holidays, but for now this is what I can think of.

I have a family gifts board on my pinterest thats full of ideas and each of my kids also have their own boards, anything from there would be awesome.  http://pinterest.com/mama24boyz/

I would love lots of snowball surprises!! These look awesome! One at a time of course   http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505452/

These would be great for anyone on my list too http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505455/
As would these snowman chocolates http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513505443/

Heres another thing that would work for so many people. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199509667971/

Mom OK, my Mom is hard!!  Maybe not, but she is for me.  She has a unique style I think.  She loves her hot tub and being outside.  She likes wine.  She has little iguanas hanging around (ceramic, not real) and she likes bold colours.
- I would LOVE if someone could knit her these socks http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-socks-2
- My Moms a machine shop teacher in high school.  I think she would LOVE some sort of steampunk ornament. 
- My Mom would LOVE this windchime made of old wine bottles.  Could be any colour. http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510547042/
- These mason jars would be perfect for her deck at night! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510408563/
- This would be PERFECT!!! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513369661/
- love love this for her!!! http://www.pinterest.com/pin/5559199513598292/

Dad My Dad is another one who is pretty difficult.  Hes originally from Manchester England and loves Manchester soccer team.  I really dont have any ideas for him.
- Manchester United coasters

Max - Brother Max and Nat just had a baby boy!!!  As of today he is a whole 5 days old!!  Max also LOVES Ace Ventura and Scarface.
- Something to do with Daddy would be amazingly awesome!

Natalie SIL Nat loves dancing and baking.  She has her own dance studio where she teaches kids.  She loves turtles.  She likes nautical themed things.  Shes a brand new wonderful Mommy!!
- Ballerina loaded charm bracelet
- A business card holder
- She does yoga, these socks or some similar would be perfect! http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559563/
- I think Nat would like these too, I like that they look like long legwarmers but they really only peek out the top of your boot so they don't have to be as long as these ones and go all the way to your ankle... http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199510559566/
- A cute chapstick holder would be nice, whether its for one to hang on a keychain or something for multiple to go in her purse
- HUGE WISH!!!! would LOVE this for Nat - http://pinterest.com/pin/5559199513422873/ to say Madden of course, 08-24-13 as the birth date and August birthstone.   Thanks GlassKicker!!!

- Fireman/policeman ANYTHING (plush, bag, art to hang in his room, toy.)
- I think I would like to make up a felt toy set, maybe have it in a nice box for him.  Filled with felt masks, kinda like a dress up box I guess, but mostly masks.  Animals, glasses, mustaches, superheroes.  This is copied over from last year and he still has some, but honestly, he absolutely LOVES this stuff!!. Thanks utm!!!

I claim mama24boys for some play teabags (from your pinterest), and a cute top for Daysie Lynn and something pinup for Haley (will pm to discuss-- if it doesn't work out then felted soaps)

(1, 0 0)

Hiya! I'm Molly, and I live in Oklahoma with my amazing husband and our pug, Cookie. I'm lucky enough to come from a super creative family and work as a creative, so that means that everyone I know is so hard to craft for! I'm shooting for a handmade Christmas since we just moved (read: are really really broke), so I'm looking forward for the chance to use my stash to help others do the same thing. Oh, and I'm really looking forward to spoiling myself and others with craftster's amazing talent. As always, please pm me with any measurement/sizing or other questions.

ALLERGY: We are all sensitive to smoke, and my husband(DH) is allergic to cats.


A note on my multiple wishes: There are many things I'm requesting multiples of, in no way do I expect one person to take all of that on! Feel free to pick and choose whichever number you feel is fair; I also wanted people to be able to choose different small things to make up one claim.

An overall note: My peeps and I all love re-purposed/vintage materials as much if not more than new/storebought since they are unusual and one of a kind! Please feel free to incorporate those materials into any of my wishes. Smiley


**= Would super duper love

Thank you SO much for claiming me! Cheesy


Stencil/Screenprinting/Painted T-shirt wishes

**For my DH, a replacement similar to this T-shirt; it sadly got lost, he loved it, and now they don't make it any more. Sad He's a medium
https://www.etsy.com/transaction/39194405?ref=fb2_tnx_image

**For a coworker and others. If someone who screenprints using the photo emulsion method would be willing to make and send me a screen I own the image and text I want to use (I even have transparencies). It seems that I no longer have luck with burning screens successfully.

**For a coworker/friend. This epic beard tee, or something similar. He is a medium- large in t-shirts-- a long/tall medium is the best fit for him, he's super tall and skinny.
http://tinyurl.com/lyrdpyc

-(For me) Unicorn Tee with this phrase-- The more pastelly and magical the better! The phrase just stenciled and spray painted would be great, too. Ombre would be super neat with that method. Pastel purple, turquoise, or pink on white. I am a medium in T-shirts, a large in junior's sizing or fitted tees
https://www.etsy.com/listing/118061917/always-be-yourself-unless-you-can-be-a?ref=market

-(For me) Black Lithographic type print of anything, really-- but especially hot air balloons, ferris wheels, old ephemera type ads/postcards, old pictures of cars or an art nouveau flower design. Inkodye is amazing, too!!

Sewing

**An organizer for my mom's stash of Perle Cotton embroidery thread. She loves purple, bright gypsy colors, cutesy owls and muted realistic nature themes-- leaves, branches, trees and sheep.

**An apron for my amazing friend Mo! She loves cooking and she doesn't know it, but she's a bit of a girly girl at heart-- I'd like to see something that incorporates some ruffles but sticks to her colors and understated glam but no fuss style. Think black and white/cream, gunmetal, tonal neutrals with some kicks of pattern/glitz/color. Very modern, classy yet laidback.
This color combo and look is her to a "t"

http://media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/e1/7d/c0/e17dc0f6b1df886a280fe4786942e289.jpg

-(friends) Scarf necklaces all color combos-- or even just serged lengths of scarf strips would save me much time in making these-- I don't have a serger!
http://www.scarves.net/blog/diy-anthropologie-scarf-necklace

-(Mom/Dad/Friend) If you have an embroidery machine, I would love some embroidered pieces that I would give either as appliques or use myself on gifts to others (on pockets, journals, hats, etc).

   -"Mo Money Mo Problems" Bonus if it's cursive and on a scroll. Could use a few different styles.
   -"yeah, brah" for a guy
   - Tree of life/Aragorn's tree symbol
   - Owls-- especially in cute colors or tribal
   - Tribal elephants in bright colors
    -Ferris wheels or hot air balloons
(Maybe more if I think of it)

-(Me) A mixed media tee like one of these. I think these are great mixed media/Teesha Moore candidates. On white, gray, or mostly any color. I'm a medium in t-shirts, large-xl in fitted tees or junior sizing.

Jewelry

-(Co-workers/friends-- could use several) Long drapey necklaces with or without beads in all colors/finishes, but especially silver, seafoam, pine or all shades of green, MOP or pearlescent/white, copper, gold, brass, black, magenta, turquoise, any bright saturated color or jewel tone. Quirky is fantastic, so if you have quirky charms, or even want to make an assortment of mixing and matching that would be fab. Fabric, paper, fused glass, leather, wood, mixed media elements welcomed. Let the creativity flow and be free!!
http://tinyurl.com/n3gkkc6
http://tinyurl.com/lwyw3wb

-(Mom) Shawl pin. Something like this http://tinyurl.com/lxdnpvj or a leaf or a tree of life.

-(Dad) A manly copper cuff. Hi likes Celtic and tree designs.

-(Dad) A manly belt buckle with Celtic or filigree designs. Bonus if it can have a J in the middle.

-(Me) Anything from this pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/guacamolly/christmas-wishlist/




Foodie Wishes

(DH) Homemade Foods like beef jerky, hot sauce, spice blends. He loves trying new things, and while it doesn't *have* to be hot, he signs waivers for hot sauces, so, just sayin'. It definitely can't be too hot.

(Co-workers) Homemade cookies/goodies. I love to bake, especially around the holidays, but we just moved and I have no time!! I would love to treat my peeps at work to homemade goodies that I didn't have to make. I would take them in right away, so no worries on making something that keeps. Bonus if you can make something low-carb, that will be a treat for my DH, parents and I! We are not picky, my mom has a cashew allergy.

(DH) Gourmet/self roasted coffees, whole bean is fine

Jellies/Jams in any flavor



Paper crafting

-Some tags for a friend who is always making and giving jams, cookies and goodies away. Maybe even an assortment of sizes and even some small cards that could go on top of a pan of brownies or plate of cookies. I'd love it if they would say MO's MOlicious MOrsels

-I want to give out cookie giftboxes this year, so I would love some cute boxes. I could use several (like 20 or more). I'd prefer square or rectangle with a lid option, but I am seriously very flexible! They can be Christmas themed, covered in scrapbook paper, old music/book pages, solids or just kraft or white, I can easily add embellishments myself. Here's a link to ONE idea: https://www.etsy.com/listing/110878994/10-kraft-boxes-soap-box-2-58-x-3-34-x-1?ref=favs_view_19&atr_uid=6431548

-(Me) Business card and slightly bigger sized jewelry cards, mainly for post earrings. Themes most desired: Kraft, white or solid cardstock with a black ferris wheel, carousel, typewriter, bicycle, text, flower, etc. Repurposed from other things is great, too!


Misc.

**(Friends/BIL) A manly leather-like journal/sketchbook. I could use three. Bonus if it can have initials. Initials in order of importance: J, S, T

(friends/family) An assortment of headbands. Thin width, preferable with a little stretch, many styles would be great, but tribal or vintage trims especially. All colors/styles welcome. Please no FOE, unless it's for the stretchy part at the back. Other methods ie crochet are welcome!

http://tinyurl.com/l8ghovf
http://tinyurl.com/p6uhql7

(friends) Fabric yo-yos so that I can make these and other things for friends. Huge bonus if you can include fun ribbons findings or bits and make it like a kit so that I can supplement from my stash!
http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-z9GdaTVBxlU/TZzIfdmn0FI/AAAAAAAAI0w/Y1JSn64S4ME/s640/DSC_1051.JPG


(friends/co-workers/family) Tagged journals. These are sooo awesome! I could use several. New or vintage/repurposed fabrics and such. With or without cool mod podged, painted, or just regular pencils.
http://www.radicalpossibility.com/2012/07/making-anthro-inspired-moleskine-and.html

(Mom/friends) These amazing candlesticks. Since shipping can be a problem, I can assemble myself if someone would send me some of the components as a kit, or even just old odds and ends of random candlesticks. I think these would be great gifts for several people.
http://tinyurl.com/my8k2ye


(Me/friends) I have some special holiday events, and I would love a special blingy headband/fascinator/clip like one of these. These would also be great gifts for friends.
http://tinyurl.com/mxfhwlp
http://tinyurl.com/mhzsyht
http://tinyurl.com/kkdq5wg

(me) Artwork like this. I think it needs to be a poster above my bed!
https://scontent-b-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/1378225_10200580948906106_432106466_n.jpg

*NEW*(Friend's daughter) A wrist cuff made from the spine of a book. HUGE bonus if it's a Poe title.
http://makezine.com/craft/recycled_book_cuffs/?parent=Green

*NEW* (My craft room) Fabric or other material baskets for organization. Even mod podged or painted re-used containers-- I need lots of organization in my life! Pm me with questions, we can discuss colors.


Crochet

(Co-workers) Crocheted beards. I could use 6 (of course not one claim). I think this would be hilarious. 

Crocheted earrings/jewelry like this. Colors: white/cream, black, deep brown, pine green, red, charcoal gray, mint green.
